    Summary

    “How did this even happen?” Nicky had asked, arms full of bags from Target that were nearly bursting with four-year-old sized clothing and toys that most of them had never owned when they were children themselves. Neil had watched from the couch, silent and untrusting.

    “No idea,” Andrew had said, and that was that.

    No one knows for how long, no one knows why, no one knows very much of anything, really.

    Summary

    “You’ll probably never meet them,” his mother said one day at a diner in Texas. It caught him off guard.

    “What?”

    “You’ll probably never meet them,” she repeated, nodding in the direction of the lilac bruise splashed across his forearm. “Your soulmate. You’ll most likely never live that long.”

    “I know,” he said, and hoped that she believed him.

    Summary

    They kiss, slow and languid and unhurried. Neil kisses with his whole goddamn body, sliding and pressing and humming into Andrew's mouth. Andrew feels his heart settle for the first time in weeks.

    '224%, Josten.'

    'You're the best.'

    'The best, what?'

    Neil laughs, bright and loud. 'The best everything.'

    Summary

    “Here’s what I propose: we’ll play a game, and I’ll even let you pick which one, but we’re going to set some stakes. I’m not going to let you talk big and walk away free of punishment if you lose.”
    Without hesitating, Kevin asked, “Fine, I choose Trivial Pursuit. What are the stakes?”
    Allison put a finger to her lips and tilted her head, as if she was actually thinking of a response and didn’t plan this whole thing days ago.
    “Hmm, did you know the spirit store recently added fox themed thigh-high socks to their stock? They’ve become quite popular amongst cheerleaders.”
    This statement seemed to throw Kevin off because he just stared blankly at Allison until she continued. Andrew was not, however, an idiot. He could see where this was going.
    “How about whoever loses has to wear the socks for an entire school day; including morning and evening practices?”
    “Holy shit,” Nicky whispered. “You are one devious bitch.”
    Allison winked.
